My friend Patty came to my rescue...
Just wanted you to know that I am right now running out the door to withdraw as much as I can from our bank accounts so that I can send all of it to you, Phil and Dorothy. It won't be much, but maybe it will be enough to get you to Hawaii. If you need me to, I can look into getting a loan to access further funds. I tried to get Joe to agree to cash out his 401K, but he said I was nuts and hung up on me. Poor guy just doesn't get the seriousness of this situation. I'm thinking I could probably do it online, using Joe's information, so I can do that as well, if you need me to.
Hang in there. Help is on the way.
Now... who else is gonna help me get to Hawaii? Or Florida...? Florida's first cuz my darling daughter will be leaving us on Friday, moving to Florida for a college internship for 8 months. So, now I'll really need your money!
